We Are Lady Parts writer gives update on when season 2 starts filming
The first season of the comedy was released in 2021.
The news was announced by the show's writer and creator Nida Manzoor during an exclusive interview to promote her new film Polite Society – and she also teased what fans can look forward to in the second outing.
"So we'll shoot later in the year," she said. "I'm currently writing, in the writing process, [and it] has been really fun to dive back into that world. So yeah, we shoot later this year to come out next year – so Lady Parts series 2 is well underway."
Asked what fans can look forward to in the second run, she continued: "More original songs, more fun covers, a few new characters, a slightly expanded universe. But yeah, much more of the same!"

The first six-episode season of We Are Lady Parts debuted on Channel 4 in 2021 – three years after its original pilot – and proved a huge hit with audiences and critics.
It followed student Amina Hussain (Anjana Vasan), who is recruited as lead guitarist for the titular punk band Lady Parts but finds herself caught between two different worlds – her more strait-laced uni friends and the band, who urge her to find her voice.
The show was nominated for a number of awards including the BAFTAs for Best Scripted Comedy and Best Female Comedy Performance for Vasan, and won the award for Best Comedy Series at the 2021 Edinburgh International Television Festival.
